Playoff-Only Fantasy Football Rankings

These rankings can be used for all playoff fantasy formats but were made for .5 PPR leagues with a tight end spot. Beware of your league settings and adjust accordingly. Underdog does not use a tight end, devaluing Travis Kelce, whereas the FFPC Playoff Challenge is TE Premium and awards double points for the Super Bowl. Most leagues don’t go deep enough for the second half of this list to matter, but some sites, like DraftKings, feature absurdly large rosters.

Another note is that the rankings are nothing without a sound strategy. Each format has its quirks, but most fantasy playoff contests reward competitors for drafting players or even stacks that last until deep into the postseason. Playoff leagues are almost universally tournaments, so the rankings have an eye on upside. For these reasons, the rankings should only be used as a guideline, but looking at teams as a whole and building around them is also important. With that out of the way, here are the goods.
